1935 S Wheat penny

#1 Unread post by Gyphted »

Hi my names Phin and this is my very first post.
This coin weighs 2.8g and looks to me as if it had been repeatedly struck numerous times. My question is, is this a mint error n or a very weirdly damaged coin. And I111
Thank you in advance for all your input and help with this coin.

If you would go to error-ref.com and look up multiple struck coins or doubled struck coins then you would find out this coin is not it, it's actually badly smashed and damaged after it left the mint. No part of the minting process can do this to a coin.

Thank's for your quick responses. What's the record number of times a coin had been struck in the machine and repeatedly struck?

Your coin hasn't been struck multiple times and usually when it get's past two it ends up being bonded to the next coin that enters the coining chamber.
When a coin fails to leave the coin chamber after being struck, that doesn't stop other coins from entering and being struck together.
This is the reason it's important for to read through error-ref.com like it's a book, you will learn so much more than just posting odd looking coins.

Oh no, that is a Parking lot Penny, chewed up there . . .

It's a shame that a 1930s Wheat Penny with a 'S' Mintmark suffered the same fate as the other coins there did . . . 😞
Coin collecting since 2019! (Still learning)

2019 finds: 1926 Wheat Penny

2020 finds: 1966 90% Silver Canadian Quarter, 1983-S Proof Kennedy Half Dollar. 2000-S Clad Proof Roosevelt Dime, 5 wheat pennies in a single coin roll, & a 1910 Wheat Penny for Christmas!

2021 Finds: 1949-S Jefferson Nickel

Welcome.

If you can think of a way to duplicate a coin's look using tools out in the garage, then someone likely beat you to it (as well as beating the coin).

Don't assume mint damage b/c most of the time it won't be. And as Daniel has said, please read error-ref.com like a book. :)
